Thank you very much to everybody who has shown concern about my lost quilt.
Today I received the message from the organizers in France that it has finally arrived at their office. It took the carrier only two months and ten days to get it there. The mistake was in a misprinting of the street address when the German carrier relabeled the package before giving it to the French carrier, they say. (Why do they have to do that? Can't they just trust the label that the sender puts onto a package?)
They were kind (or should I say 'generous') enough to say it was not my fault. (For a while I had been told that it must have been my fault, I probably sent it to a wrong address. As if it's not bad enough to have one's quilt lost, why did they have to add insult to injury?) Anyway - relief is slowly sinking in, although it is still taking a little while...
At least it will be traveling with the show to the other venues. It just was not considered for any of the prizes.
